T Minus 2

Two days until we leave on vacation. We've been planning our trip for about six months now and it's finally time! We will be cavorting around Tennessee and Kentucky for about 10 days. A cabin in the Smoky Mountains for a couple days, and visits to the Mammoth Cave and Creation Museum in Kentucky are just a few things on our itinerary. I'm pretty sure there will be opportunities to blog along the way.

In the meantime I have a lot to do. Aside from packing and getting ready there is a dress idea floating around in my mind just waiting to be made for Sadie.

In one month she will be a year old! Somewhere along the way we've went from this:

Giveaway! Reversible Tote

I finally found the fabric I was looking for, something that is a little trendy but not too weird. I made a tote just like this for myself last Fall to use for library trips. It works great! It's reversible, one side is a pretty Japanese style blossom print, the other side is stripes. You know what to do if you want this tote...just leave a comment and you will be entered in the drawing that will take place next Tuesday.

Bedhead Girl...and More

Sadie's hair is starting to grow in pretty good. It's growing in nice and even too. Although, I think it may be time in invest in one of those little soft baby brushes.

I named this picture My Precious Grapes because I can't help but think of Gollum from LOTR.

Mary Jane apparently thinks she is a cat and needs to nap in the sun. It's such a hard life staring out the window all day barking at squirrels.

Finally, we have boys behaving...well...nicely. Even though they're wearing skeleton shirts.

April Bullets


  • Try, try again. Last year I bought a little strawberry plant and a little lavender plant from Target's dollar section. I followed the directions and gave them lots of TLC but neither of them even sprouted. I'm trying again with another strawberry plant and a tomato plant this year.
  • April must of got my letter. It's been nice enough for us to start going outside and the boys to start riding their bikes. C-ya snow, feel free to stay away until Christmas!
  • I am in the middle of so many sewing projects right now. I really shouldn't even be writing this post! I have dresses and outfits to finish, dresses to take in, half-smocked pieces to finish ect... I'm hoping to take on more sewing orders though, so I need to get used to working it into my schedule. Pretty soon I will have an email address posted on my sewing blog for contacting me regarding having something made.
  • I know I still have to make that tote to give away! I haven't forgotten, I just have to find the right fabric. I shouldn't feel so guilty, I mean I'm giving it away, but I still feel bad that it is taking so long.
  • Several weeks ago, Rachel told us about these rolls of paper you can buy from the local newspaper (the ends that are left after the paper is printed). Now, our boys love to draw. LOVE to draw. They draw on every available scrap of paper they can get their hands on. We bought 5 of these rolls for $2 a piece. Now, they can draw to their hearts content.

Dear April

Dear April,
Welcome back! Last year you weren't very nice to me. Maybe this year you could make it up to me and do something about this:


If you don't, then May is my BFF.
